What are the advantages/disadvantages of Cassandra over HBase?

Ease of setup: all nodes are the same.

No single point of failure: all nodes are the same.

Speed: http://www.brianfrankcooper.net/pubs/ycsb-v4.pdf

Richer model: supercolumns.
I think that there are people that would be of a different opinion here.  Cassandra has
as I've understood it table:key:name:val and in cases the val is a serialized data structure.
In HBase you have table:row:family:key:val:version, which some people might consider

Multi-datacenter awareness.

There are likely other things I'm forgetting, but those stand out for me.
